Iowa Pork BBQ Rub captures the distinctive flavor of Memphis-style barbecue, sweet and hot all at the same time. Developed to be a perfect companion to BBQ pork, but also extra-tasty on chicken.
Formally known as Pig Powder BBQ Rub.
Memphis, Tennessee, sits at the confluence of the Mississippi and Wolf rivers, right where Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi meet. Home to blues music and early rock'n'roll, Memphis is also celebrated as a culinary epicenter for fantastic barbecue.
Memphis-style barbecue is always pork, primarily ribs, and occasionally pulled pork shoulder for sandwiches. Ribs are cut in the "St. Louis style," and seasoned before cooking with a dry rub like our Iowa Pork BBQ Rub.
Iowa Pork BBQ Rub uses the base of all good Memphis-style rubs - paprika, which bestows that red, rich color and robust sweet-hot flavor. Use our Iowa Pork BBQ Rub for perfect Memphis-style ribs using this simple technique: liberal application to the meat, and long, slow cooking over a low, steady heat.
Try Iowa Pork BBQ Rub on pork ribs, Boston butts [for pulled pork], on picnic hams, and shoulder roasts. Don't be stingy - pack it on for great flavor - make a paste with one of our citrus olive oils, rub, and grill.
Ingredients: Sugar, salt, paprika, chile powder, garlic, rice concentrate, pepper, cayenne, other spices
